    The latest voter-fraud convictions in Troy, N.Y., must be very inconvenient to the public-affairs propagandists over at the DNC and the NAACP, as well as liberal media outlets like the New York Times. It just ruins their constant refrain that there is no voter fraud in the United States. Eric Shawn at FOX News reports that two Troy city officials, the city clerk and a councilman, along with two Democratic political operatives, have pled guilty to forging absentee-ballot signatures and casting fraudulent ballots in the 2009 Working Families Party primary.

I don't know a whole lot of IA history, so I've been surprised to see so many voter totals going down in response to people leaving. Most of the counties I've analyzed so far have had a 1-8% decrease in voter turnout...

    Is it racist to require people to show a photo ID when they vote? You need a photo ID for nearly any meaningful transaction, such as cashing checks, including government checks. If this simple requirement “suppresses” the vote, maybe we need to ask why it’s such a great idea to push for universal suffrage for every adult who is merely breathing. Of course, even this latter requirement would suppress the vote in Chicago and New Orleans, where dead people get to vote all the time – and do so cheerfully! In a speech Tuesday at the Lyndon Baines Johnson Library...

The report catalogued several categories of laws that have been passed largely by Republican-dominated legislatures and which...

We still have plenty of mistrust that will take generations to undo, especially given that we still have those with living memories of having been denied the right to vote. Still, if the NAACP wants...

The experts say the newly developed hack could change voting results while leaving absolutely no trace of the...

    Stand With Arizona ^ | 09-25-2011 | John Hill
    by John HillStand With ArizonaSneaking it in late on a Friday afternoon on a very busy news day, the U.S. Department of Justice quietly told the Texas Secretary of State that the state's Voter ID law - passed this past Spring - "lacked enough information for the government to render a decision." More specifically, the DoJ wants more information about the "group of , 605,576 registered voters who do not possess a valid ID". What kind of information? Why ethnic information, of course. But they only seem interested in Hispanic would-be voters, not Black ones... The department specifically asks the...

    Somebody from FOX or Glenn Beck needs to obtain a tape from todays Norman Goldman radio show. He is asking his listeners to rig the election computers. Thats right, asking his listeners to commit voter fraud everyway possible right on the airwaves. Would not believe it if I didnt hear it for myself. Using the Airwaves to call for voter fraud has to be illegal.

    The Disfranchisement of Our Military Voters By Hans A. von Spakovsky and Eric Eversole Published September 07, 2011 | FoxNews.com Time and again, Eric Holders Justice Department and its Civil Rights Division has shown how highly partisan it is. From its dismissal of the New Black Panther Party voter intimidation case, to its harassment of jurisdictions with voter ID laws, the Division has proven that its far-left liberal ideology determines whether it will enforce (or not enforce) the law. Now it is ignoring the plight of military voters.

    Why are left-wing activist groups so keen on registering the poor to vote? Because they know the poor can be counted on to vote themselves more benefits by electing redistributionist politicians. Welfare recipients are particularly open to demagoguery and bribery.

    Will it suppress the vote, as minority groups and Democrats allege? Or will it restore integrity and increase the state's abysmal turnout at the polls, as those who champion the measure say it will? Beginning in 2012, voters will be required to show a valid photo ID in order to cast a ballot. Gov. Rick Perry designated the legislation, which passed as Senate bill 14, by state Sen. Troy Fraser, R-Horseshoe Bay, as an emergency item. During the 2009 session, the voter ID bill came close to derailing the final weeks of the 81st Legislature as House Democrats engaged in...

    We keep hearing from the usual suspects on the Left that voter fraud is virtually non-existent, a figment of the collective imagination of racist vote-suppressing Republicans. And yet more evidence of voter fraud keeps surfacing. In Wake County, North Carolina, Shelia Ramona Hodges, Kierra Fontae Leach, Brandon Earl McLean, and Lela Devonetta Murray have been charged with voting twice, a felony. According to TV station WRAL McLean and his fiancee Leach admit to participating in early voting in the 2008 election. Unsure about the process on Election Day, they said they went to the polls to make sure their vote...
